I am a widely-experienced business leader and coach. I have worked for medium and large organisations for over 30 years, holding many roles during that time, the majority at senior management level leading large national departments & teams.
Throughout my career, I have used my inspirational leadership skills to grow and develop individuals and teams, making a real difference to the people that I have worked with using my high levels of empathy & patience countered by a passion to always improve so that results are met, and targets exceeded.
I am passionate about my personal responsibility for learning & reflection, constantly improving my knowledge and understanding, learning new skills, and adapting to new roles and business areas through further education & study.
I live in south Manchester, and I work extensively throughout the United Kingdom. I am also available for international work, particularly in the USA where I have a base in Ohio.
My coaching experience includes:
Executive coaching, business coaching, personal transitional and change coaching, organisational development and change facilitation, organisational restructure including assessment centres and performance management, personal development, behavioural competencies, building high performing teams, relationship building, motivation, networking, confidence building, leadership and management skills programmes, managing conflict and stress management coaching, goal setting, strategy facilitation, career development, outplacement programmes and interviewing skills, and career coaching.
I have also recently added parent coaching to my skills. Teenagers in particular bring challenges that even the most experienced parents find challenging. Having raised 4 sons to adults I am well positioned to help you work out a plan for building a productive relationship with your child.
I offer coaching in your own home, at work or a new option called “Walk & Talk”, where we meet somewhere to exploit the many known benefits of exercise and fresh-air – my newest offer combines both of those with a coaching session. Green spaces & nature provide many sensory metaphors which are invaluable on the journey to self-discovery and recovery. Available to all clients at a place to be agreed and subject to travelling costs.
